Joan Aus

Assistant Professor/Director of ELL for the Graduate Program

I am originally from Sherman Oaks, California and moved to North Dakota with my husband, Jon and my two wonderful boys. We love the quality of life here in Valley City and the quaint, old world charm of the town. The campus shares the same Norman Rockwellian feel and is a true learner-centered college.

I am currently the Director of the English Language Learner (ELL) program, as well as a full-time professor in the Department of Education. My fields of specialty are ELL pedagogical methods as well as multicultural education, and my areas of research include monolingual English and bilingual instruction for ELLs. My doctorate is in Education with an emphasis in the teaching and learning of culturally and linguistically diverse students. Prior to teaching in higher education I was an English language arts ELL teacher.
